It is a not-for-profit, private health care institution, established in 1952, that is committed to providing affordable, high-quality services in a safe and friendly environment.

We also offer neo-natal critical care and maternal and child health care.

The hospital’s facilities include relevant diagnostics, integrated operating rooms, and a
